The ICT committee of the House of Representatives held a hearing on Wednesday, May 10, to tackle measures that prohibit the use of telecommunications devices for illicit and nefarious activities.

Among the bills tackled was HB No. 929, which provides for a “No Calls and No Text Registration System.” As its name implies, the bill provides remedies on dealing with unwanted telephone and mobile communications.
